The focus this week is on new rules, new formats and new 'smart' sliotars ahead of the opening weekend of the hurling and football leagues as well as the ladies national football league.

Mikey Stafford is joined in studio by The Examiner's GAA correspondent John Fogarty, RTÉ Sport’s Declan Whooley and Sunday Game producer Rory O’Neill.

CEO of Greenfields Digital Sports Technology Tomás Mullins explains what lies behind the yellow 'smart' ball that is set to be introcuded for the 2020 hurling championship, while Galway’s All Star defender Nicola Ward talks about final heartbreak and 2020 ambitions.
